Dear readers,

I am informing you of the removal of Texodus Predictions from my listing of prediction market consultants. The listing is intended to display serious and professionally minded consultants, only.

Thanks for your attention.

As I understand it:

– Prediction market consultancy in Portugal-

– They probably licensed Xpree&#8216-s software for enterprise prediction markets. UPDATE: They created their own software for enterprise prediction markets.

Best wishes to them.

Google PageRank of the main Prediction Market Consultants

Inking Markets and NewsFutures are graded 6 / 10.

Consensus Point and Xpree are graded 5 / 10.

My great friend David Perry of Consensus Point is making a strategic mistake by insisting on discretion and secrecy.

I told him 10 times.

To no avail.

Pissing in a violin in order to create a symphony would have been more fruitful.

PageRank is important.

One day, we will learn in the Wall Street Journal that a Fortune-500 CEO is fired by the board for a low PageRank.

That will happen one day- you will see.
